Christopher Nolan is a prolific film-maker. His 2000 break-through film Memento blew the minds of movie-goers everywhere. Since then he has directed great films such as Inception, The Prestige, and the Dark Knight trilogy. Many great actors have appeared in several of his films. This list of actors who have been in the most Christopher Nolan movies has been ranked by number of appearances, then loosely ranked by fame. 

Who is the actor who has worked with Christopher Nolan the most? Michael Caine tops the list. The veteran actor has appeared in six of Nolan's films including Inception, Batman Begins, and Interstellar. Nolan reportedly considers Caine to be “his good luck charm.”

Perhaps Christopher Nolan's most notable collaboration is with Christian Bale. The duo has worked together on a total of four projects. Of Bale's iconic “Batman voice” Nolan says, “[Bale] had decided that Batman needed to have a different voice to Bruce Wayne - that he needed to put on a voice. That supported the visual appearance of the character and explained why people don't recognize him from his voice. It was pretty logically thought out.”
